It appears former Michigan offensive lineman Logan Tuley-Tillman is staying in the Midwest.

Tuley-Tillman, who was dismissed from Michigan in September 2015, announced on Twitter Wednesday night that he will continue his career at Akron as a graduate transfer.

“Finally done with my bachelors and happy to join @ZipsFB and get back to work,” Tuley-Tillman tweeted.

Tuley-Tillman was dismissed by Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh for “conduct unacceptable for a Michigan student-athlete.” A few months later, specifics emerged when Tuley-Tillman was charged with three felonies for filming sex with a woman without her consent.

The 6-foot-7, 309-pound tackle eventually pled guilty to lesser charges in March and was put on two years probation.

Tuley-Tillman was a four-star recruit in Brady Hoke’s final Michigan recruiting class. He redshirted in 2013 and appeared in one game as a backup in 2014. He was UM’s second-string left tackle and appeared in the opener last season before his dismissal.

Tuley-Tillman previously announced a commitment to Washington State in January, but he clearly has a change of plans. If the transfer to Akron comes to fruition, Tuley-Tillman will have two years of eligibility remaining and can compete immediately.
